New call for papers: Knowledge management for development in 2020: let your imagination fly!

The Knowledge Management for Development Journal (KM4D Journal) is a peer-reviewed community-based journal on knowledge management for development – for and by development practitioners, researchers and policymakers. The journal is closely related to the KM4Dev community of practice (www.km4dev.org). This Call for Papers concerns the issue to be published in December 2015, Volume 11, Issue 3.

 

Rationale

There have been some recent efforts to predict the future on knowledge management for development, the field (KM4D) and the community (KM4Dev). One such effort has been the Envisioning Km4Dev Futures 2013-2014, funded by International Fund for Agriculture (IFAD) which featured a series of projects looking at the future of KM4Dev.[i][ii]  Others have encouraged KM4Dev to take a transformational path such as Valerie Brown’s work on transformational science (Brown and Harris 2013), to focus on KM4Dev as the ‘new Enlightenment’ (Ferreira 2009) or to explore the link between KM4D and transdisciplinary research, and use this to make predictions about the future of KM4Dev (Cummings et al, 2013).

On the private sector side, we regularly see scoping views on where KM is headed, what the ‘next big thing’ is, and what internal and external forces will cause the discipline to shape itself over the coming years. Similarly, it would be interesting to hear what this community thinks about the future KM4D field trends.

 

This issue

In this issue, we would like you to use your experience and imagination to write about where you would see KM4D or KM4Dev in the future, or where you fear it might be going. You can focus on a field of practice, such as facilitationcommunities of practice or evaluation, or on a theme or sector, such as KM4D related to big datafood and nutrition security,agriculture and rural development or ICTs, or covering local, regional or continental perspectives. Or you can try to cover the whole field, linking it to predictions about the state of development, such as the Sustainable Development Goals, or of knowledge management. Technological predictions for our field are also welcome. Contributions can cover emerging trends, technologies, political developments, organisational aspects, etc. We hope to see a rich range of contributions, including a combination of personal reflections and papers. We would also like to encourage those involved in the KM4Dev Futures project to share their reflections and insights.

 

Submission of abstracts and papers
We welcome articles, case studies, thought pieces, publication reviews, short stories, KM4Dev Community Notes, life stories, debates, letters and annotated bibliographies from both academics and practitioners. Literary contributions – such as poems, stories or metaphors – would also be welcome. Contributions are welcome in English, French and Spanish.

The submission and review process leading to publication is explained below, together with a schedule. If you would like to submit a paper, or be actively involved in this initiative in any other way, please send your abstract (minimum one paragraph – maximum one page) or your message by e-mail to km4dj-editors@dgroups.org before 3 July 2015 (please include ‘Future Issue’ in the title of your email).

Guidelines for authors are available on the KM4Dev wiki in English, French and Spanish:http://wiki.km4dev.org/KM4D_Journal_-_Editors%27_Workspace#Author_Guidelines

A few people have asked how to join this group. You need to join the KM4Deve NING site first, and then this group. Here are three screen shots to walk you through the process. The first is from http://www.km4dev.org -- the home page. The second is from the registration page you go to when you click "join" and the third is this Journal page where, in the upper right hand corner, you can join this group. Holler if you have any questions.

Hi Ewen,

 

I have access to volumes 5-7. I would be interested in a monthly article chat. Look forward to hearing more about this.

Comment by Ewen Le Borgne on March 16, 2012 at 8:27am

Can some of you please check http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/rkmd20 to see if you have full access to all volumes of the journal? If that's the case it's great (according to T&F policy, it shouldn't be the case actually)!

 

Comment by Ewen Le Borgne on March 15, 2012 at 1:37am

Nancy just posted this idea on the mailing list:  

It might be fun to have a little side group to discuss one or more articles each month. Maybe on our NING site as a way to also see how we can have some side conversations and weave them back into the larger communities. Anyone interested in a journal club? Organizing a first conversation focus?

Gada Kodada and Tariq Zaman already indicated their interest... Anyone up for joining/ leading this?

Greetings,

I wanted to ask a question, and it seems I  have to be a member of this group in order to do that. So, is this the place to inquire about/request/apply for such membership?

While I'm at it, my question concerns backissues, prior to Taylor and Francis taking over: At the latter site, it appears that only vol. 5 and later is available. What about vols. 1-4?

PS. This all started because it seems that an article I co-authored for vol. 2 appears to be available with different page numbers.

Bonsoir,

 

Merci de m'accueillir dans cet espace d'échange et de partage.

 

Bonne fin de semaine

Le journal anglophone “Knowledge Management for Development” existe depuis 2005. La communauté de pratique KM4Dev et sa branche francophone SA-GE mettent l'accent sur la gestion et le partage des connaissances pour le développement. Cela comprend diverses approches de gestion des connaissances dans les organisations de développement, grandes et petites, au Sud comme au Nord. Nous cherchons à faciliter
la fertilisation croisée entre la gestion des connaissances et les domaines connexes.

Le journal est étroitement lié à la communauté de pratique KM4Dev www.km4dev.orget SA-GE - Savoir-Gestion, http://www.km4dev.org/group/km4devfrancophone (sur ce site NING)
